February 24, 2023 – Around 10:17 p.m., a Houston Police Department patrol officer noticed a white truck traveling at a high rate of speed and attempted to pull the driver over. The driver evaded the officer by going through side streets and ended up on Wheeler Street. At the intersection of Wheeler and Emancipation Avenue, as the officer was turning on his lights in an attempt to pull the driver over, the driver collided with a convertible before launching into the air and landing on top of four other cars.
The suspect sustained scratches and was taken into custody. He said to have a lengthy criminal history and city warrants out for his arrest. A female occupant of the convertible was taken to the hospital but is expected to recover.
